The projects listed here were chosen in two rounds of an RFP competition that started in January, 2009. In all, we received more than 600 proposals from 39 countries and gave out almost $3 million.
In the first round, we received 325 initial proposals and chose 17 of those to invite for full proposal. We then chose four from among the final 17 to fund.
In the second round, we received 327 initial proposals and chose 27 of those to invite for full proposal. We then chose nine from among the final 27 to fund.
